I’ve been looking back at weddings from the past few years, choosing my favorites, and reliving some really beautiful wedding days. Taylor and Clint’s chapel on the Creeks wedding this year was one of my favorites. As they started planning a big fall wedding in Bentonville, they started to feel like a more intimate elopement was more their style. They cancelled their venue, rearranged their plans, and eloped at Chapel on the Creeks in Rogers in front of only their closest family and a few friends. It was simply beautiful.
One of the most important qualities of making beautiful photos on your wedding day is feeling comfortable with yourself, your partner, and your photographer. I was able to get to know Taylor and Clint and their families throughout their wedding planning journey- they communicated with me when they started to consider a less traditional wedding style. They talked about what was important to them, their relationship, and how they wanted their wedding to feel- not just what it would look like. Understanding all this as their photographer was the most important way for me to connect that feeling through their images. Taylor and Clint focused the most on what was most important- each other.
